The main objective of the Marine Ecology MSc is to train the highly qualified technicians that Ocean research, consultancy, management and governance require.

In a country that holds 4% of the Atlantic Ocean and 50% of EU marine waters, the course is organized around vital areas ranging from the structure and functioning of coastal and marine ecosystems, to their management and governance, including corresponding research methodologies, or their role in a circular economy.

The course is open to candidates with diverse backgrounds as it promotes a cross-discipline approach and team work in order to achieve development of transversal and integrative competences required to tackle present and future challenges arising from the sustainable use of the Ocean in a context of promotion of its environmental quality.

MScs in Marine Ecology will thus be endowed with academic specialization profiles qualifying them for a scientific career, to top functions either at public or private institutions they may join, or to self-employment options.
